The UCSB Aristotle team developed a price performance analysis tool based on the original DrAFTS spot market prediction technology. The Aristotle AWS Pricing Tool helps users compare Aristotle resources to various AWS alternatives based on performance, cost, and price-performance. To do so, the tool runs the TOP500 LINPACK Benchmark on all Aristotle instance types and all AWS instance types, and generates a report ranking them.
With DrAFTS 2.0, users can ask questions such as: Which AWS instance type is the most equivalent to an instance type in Aristotle? Which is less costly? Which is faster? Or, if I want to spend 20% more and go 30% faster, which instance type should I use?
DrAFTS 2.0 will be made available to the wider scientific community upon completion.
